For many, many years, I was unable to decorate my home the way I wanted. I had a passel-load of little boys that were, inevitably, destructive. No matter how many times I told them to go outside, stop running in my house, stop throwing the ball, stop doing all the little boy things, things still happened.
Then, we lucked into my dream home, a 100 year old, Colonial-Style, Plantation home! It is beautiful, and ostentatious, and everything I have always wanted. It is so big, and I am so cheap, that though we have been here since 2014, it still has so much decor necessary. You can find out more about Miller Manor here.
The problem is that I have changed what I like! I have always been very into bright, summer colors… but my home is growing on me and I am settling quite comfortably into its old farmhouse appeal.

Right now, we are very into black & white buffalo plaid, burlap, and antiques! The Modern Farmhouse style is alive and well here, for sure!
Check out some of our favorites:
As I said earlier, there is a whole lot of house here – 6200 under roof, 5600 of living space. There’s always space for more decor. LOL! I get a big portion of it from Hobby Lobby and a pretty amazing local Antique shop.
Most of our wood furniture was made by my Daddy using Rustic plans from Ana-White, except the beds. He modified the plans from Shanty-2-Chic to make all the different-sized beds in our home. 🙂 The most amazing sheets on are all of them. You can see those (number 6) on this post.
Interesting tidbit: In March 2020, I redesigned my blog to match the increasingly “Old Farmhouse Chic” decor in our home! You can still find bits of my boys in the design, but it reflects their maturing ages!
